Well that was an exciting hello! I'm just high on thoughts at the moment
Will give you guys a quick run down! I have been looking to emigrate to OZ, one way or another, for the last few years. I was hopign to get over on a sponsored visa but I didnt really bring my self to get all the stuff done in time,,I got an agent, paid them lots, did an IELTS test, got my paperwork together, about to send it in (a year or so later) and my occupation (IT 3rd line support) has been removed from the SOL..bum
I accept I was a bit slow on the uptake and when I first got my idea together I should have acted alot quicker, but paper work delays, references, all sorts just took its time and it set the pace that this was something that could be done, slowly, but come to fruition eventually. well it didnt.
We haven't given up on coming over, we had a few other ideas, one being to apply and try get a sponsored 457 visa. This option now is looking one step closer as my partner has an interview for a marketing managers position in Adelaide with an offer of visas and flights sorted for us both
OK were still a long way from this working out, but it provides us with hope now, we are both skilled & educated workers, earn a good wage, pay taxes, surely it cant be this hard! We just want to come and do the same in Australia! Event if this job doesnt work out, we are going to be relentless at succeeding and doing what ever we can to get out and have a go
So hello everyone
